much so. mitt romney's best moments in that debate came when he talked about patriotic grace. when he talked about bipartisanship, his ability to work with democrats, how patriotism should leaven our understanding of politics so that we can get things done. it was lyrical and lovely. especially for someone who doesn't excel it back like mitt romney. that is what people want. they want to see people working again and leadership that allows that to happen. what joe biden was saying, was very much what we heard over the debate of the stimulus when obama came into office, and over his 2010 health law. we won, elections have consequences, you lose, you are repudiated. that is not what voters want to hear. they want to hear the patriotic grades. megyn: one viewer wrote to us and said the old man tried to push around a kid and the kid tried to stand his ground. was it just a spirited politician? forcefully advocating for his position? peter johnson junior will be here momentarily. we will be asking him about that and we will play more from the vice presidential debate see you can make up you

of these debates, the first debate with the president, he talked for 37 minutes, governor romney and told 28 myths. >> eric: running out of time. last word, cal. >> well, if you're look for honesty in politics, it's like looking for a virgin at a house of ill repute. you got plenty of lies on both sides. you got fundraising all over the place. i like to say i'm from washington, d.c. originally where the only politicians with convictions are in prison. >> that's one thing we have in common. i'm from dc, too. >> eric: we'll wait for tuesday night. thank you both. arthel? >> arthel: that was very entertaining. okay. american made -- very good, too. cal had good lines there. american made products, american made products regaining footing overseas. but after suffering the greatest recession since world war two, is the world ready to let down its guard? he he >> eric: they fought for freedom overseas. now they have a new mission here at home. nearly every member of newark, new jersey's latest class of firefighters is a military vet. that's a first there. since world war ii. anna kooiman is live with th
romney did tonight when he talked to this crowd of 13,000 people. that's what he did in the debate on wednesday. it's when he will do at the next debate. that means, i think we're going to win. it is going to be close. it always is. we're a swing state. but ultimately, this is about jobs and the economy and who has the better plan. there is no question that mitt romney's plans are going to be better for ohio, working families. that's why we are going to win this thing. >> the last time i looked, ohio had a lower unemployment rate than the national average. i thought that would help the president. is ohio's unemployment level below the national level? is -- can't the president take a bow for that? >> it is. it is a little lower than the national average, about a point below. but still people in ohio don't feel like the economy's doing well. if you add the people who stopped looking for work twould be almost 10%. that's not acceptable. that's not acceptable. so if you look at if we are going in the right direction, we reflect the nation. we think we are on the wrong track because we
think that he pushed back, you know, the people most critical of romney was g.o.p. talking heads. >> republicans. >> yeah, they ripped him. now, they see him in there. >> for good reason. but they put them in their place now and that probably is the best outcome for him. >> and what mitt romney at least listened to his critics. the scary thing about president obama, fourn office and he doesn't listen. >> adam, want to go to you for the last word. >> well, mitt romney's had a lot of critics, you have to listen when it's in your own party as gerri was saying and the republican party was like, it's like some sort of weird sort of thing, and personality and-- >> and everyone agrees. >> i don't disagree, charlie. >> let me tell you everyone agrees that mitt romney played the rope-a-dope game perhaps too long and he did come out fighting and i think it reinvigorated a lot of people aen certainly should have an impact on the money. how much we'll find out. by the way, guys, did you see this? >> this is a man who has shown throughout his life, a life of integrity, a life of honor, a man
. this is something the romney campaign likes to talk a lot about. reviews generally believe if this vice president joe biden made a mistake last night it was all he framed the administration's response to attacks on libya. this will be revisited that night. jamie: and even before. bill: each party as you can imagine naming their candidates the winner today. the republicans say ryan maintained the upper hand and withstood the biden barrage. here is kentucky senator rand paul. >> i think the president loses some points at least skaoeul lisleast style list likely looking like a cheshire cat back there. >> did romney compete. >> we have massive unemployment? what is the administration doing, what they are doing is not working, what are they going to do differently? >> the obama campaign is cheering joe biden per performance saying he laid out a clear vision for our future. >> in terms of style, joe biden is joe biden. he's authentic and real and straightforward and says what he thinks and what he means and he spoke from a lifetime of experience. and congressman ryan basically spoke that the cue cards
these distractions. and, paul ryan talked about the fact that we're going to get, that he and mitt romney will get 12 million americans back to work. he laid out very specific ideas how they will reform the tax code. how they will reduce spending. we saw vice president biden last night. they have no plans for spending. he misled on benghazi. they have no way to create jobs and talk about how they're going to get americans back to work. he said that numbers are going in the right direction. we created less jobs in the past three months than we did the month before. jon: andrea saul, from the ryan campaign. romney-ryan campaign i should say. thanks for sharing your thoughts with us. and we gave both sides equal time. thank you. >> thank you. jenna: a warning from our nation's defense secretary about a growing threat. what he says are military our military need to do before it's too late >> greater danger facing us in cyberspace goes beyond crime and it goes beyond harrassment. a cyberattack perpetrated by nation-states or violent extremist groups could be as destructive as the terrorist attack on 9/11.
seems to be romney's favor. >> let's talk specifically about battleground states, wisconsin, pennsylvania, new hampshire and michigan were all leading in obama and now considered toss-ups. let's start with wisconsin. what is happening there? >> all those four states as you said were switched by real clear politics. in wisconsin that is where paul ryan is from, mitt romney's running mate. that is only a 2-point race in wisconsin. you have to remember, this is state where back in june there was recall election against scott walker. he won the race. he demoralized the democrats. a lot of activists were saying because president obama didn't come strong in favor of the democratic candidate, it demoralized a lot of democrats there. turnout could be very important. if the democratic turnout is not high, you might see mitt romney win that state. >> patti ann: meanwhile, florida where he is romney is enjoying a 2% advantage. we have david plouffe saying, we are going to get the senior citizens and hispanics. we are going to get florida? >> it's a crucial state for romney to win, one

on the side line or will switch over to mitt romney in this election. traveling across pennsylvania i have talked to a lot of people, democrats and independents and republicans would last time votes for president obama and they have said they are not voting for president obama this time and they believe we need a change in washington. >>neil: you have proven at state level and i am not blowing out you smoke but i am intrigued by what you have done. this can be done. it is do-able. simplify the tax code. make it more friendly to business and individuals. you can do that. it is tough but you can do it. right? >>guest: you can do it if you have the discipline and the fiscal discipline for the state. i believe you can't spend more than you receive in revenues to the state. we are not washington, dc. we don't print money. we don't continue to add to the debt in that respect. we have to control our spending. the spending prior to me getting here had increased from $22 billion to almost $29 billion. we have reduced it by $2 billion. some of the money in the last budget before i took office was ba
-to-head again. that is different kind of format. the town hall format. president and mitt romney will talk to individual voters asking questions, that may be a better format for the president. jon: but it does seem that states like ohio and nevada are getting tighter, and you know, with, well the election is four weeks from tomorrow. if that momentum holds for the romney team, it could really be a surprising turn around come election day? >> it certainly could. of course the romney campaign and republican national committee did a big turnout drive this past weekend. they have been doing a lot of that. we've seen it, we've seen it more from democrats. they have been exposing some of their organizational advantages all summer long. we're just now seeing how much the romney campaign is doing in some of these states. you're right, it absolutely could turn around. until we see romney leading in a lot of these averages in a lot of these states the president still has the edge. jon: one of the questions is about voter enthusiasm. one poll says republican enthusiasm, especially post-debate, is muc
tonight. mitt romney versus the kids. that is the sum of this evening's talking points memo. what i am about to tell you is very hard to believe, but every word of it's true. yesterday mitt romney was campaigning in virginia when he saw a group of children we'ving at him from the side of the road. the governor ordered his caravan to stop so he could greet the kids and talk with them, a nice thing to do. here is the photo the associated press took at the meet and greet. a foolish shot that makes romney the butt of stupid jokes. pardon the pun. the picture was taken by photographer evan vucci and never been published. the governor doesn't know there is a child behind him. this is a cheap shot, literally. accompanying the photograph was an article by a.p. reporter lynn elber that chided him for not participate not guilty a nickelodeon special called kids pick the president. a program will be hosted by linda ellerby, a committed leftist and president obama has agreed to appear on it. governor says he passed because the scheduling, but he well knows that she and her crew are devoted obama s
the president and governor romney on russia we want to talk more where we're going. here is how the candidates talk about russia if you will. we're going to roll some sound. >> but he is eager to give russia's president putin the flexibility he desires after the election. [booing] under my administration our friend will see more loyalty and mr. putin will see a little less flexibility and more backbone. >> after all you don't call russia our number one enemy, not al qaeda, russia, unless you're still stuck in a cold war mind warp. [applause] jenna: so two very different perspectives. how should a new administration, whoever has it, engage russia in the next coming years? >> well, first of all you can't help but note both the candidates were pretty good at attack the other for probably the most inelegant and inopportune thing either one said on the subject. at one time governor romney did exaggerate calling russia our number one geostrategic foe. i don't see the argument for that. i also think president obama made the mistake with that open mic mistake back in korea earlier this year when he di
of what he and mitt romney have run on just like romney did last week. carl cameron is traveling with the governor. he just wrapped autopsy rally in ohio. good evening to you. he was talking today about his position on abortion. how did that come up, carl? >> yesterday when we were in ohio, governor romney was asked by one register to talk about his abortion position and he said he didn't know of any legislation that might come up that would affect his agenda. that caused an instant slam from the obama campaign who suggested romney was changing his position. back in 2005, he was pro-choice prior to that and became pro-life. today on the campaign trail here in ohio, mr. romney was asked again to clarify and this is kind of hard to hear. it was a very crowded restaurant in delaware, ohio. here is what he said. >> i think i said time and again, i'm a pro-life candidate. i'll be a pro-life president. the actions i'll take immediately are to remove funding for planned parenthood, will not be part of my budget. and also i've indicated i'll reverse the mexico city position of theeinstat

presidential election, but is still a massive amount of money, last night, talking to the romney campaign and the big fund-raising dollars the obama campaign was putting up, romney staffers smiled as if to suggest they might top it. >> arthel: and also a statement, romney pushing his tax policy, this weekend, right? >> reporter: of course in the wake of the debate in which the romney campaign it really defined the race, a choice between a dependency society with rising taxes that could hurt the recovery, versus the romney agenda which could cut taxes and rely fully on a smaller government and individual responsibility and entrepreneurial spirit and the romney campaign is attacking ever harder. here's a sample from last night. >> it has been calculated his tax plan raising taxes will cost 700,000 jobs. i will not raise taxes on small business and not raise taxes on middle income families. >> reporter: he will spend a little more time in florida and campaign here tomorrow and he has been doing a bit of debate prep with robhe senator from ohio and his debate sparring... playing the role of m
governor romney in ohio from early talking about success and alluding to how much fun he had on the first presidential debate. now, a couple of days away from the next one and i understand he will be off the trail preparing for that. what else? >> reporter: that's right. talking about the debate last week has been one of his biggest rallying cries in front of big crowds ever since it happened. seems to have been a big huge momentum boost for mr. romney. he did debate prep with his senior strategist and rob portman today. tomorrow he will be doing a lot of work with his team. they recognize because this s a town hall meeting and they will take questions from the public it is an opportunity for them to really connect with real voters as opposed to taking questions from the press. mr. romney down on monday as well for additional debate prep. a sign of just how important this is for him. they consider is a pivotal opportunity and to make the point that because the president had such a poor review and by his own admission don't have a good performance in the last debate the onus is on the pres
. president obama has been there nine times, governor romney 11 times since april. let's talk about it with joe varden a political reporter for the "columbus dispatch." we talked to him exactly one month ago, what has chained in that month, joe? >> well, what's changed here is what's changed everywhere in the country. last wednesday, what went on on the stage in denver has shaken up the race. things are tied here. there is no other way to put it. it's neck-and-neck in ohio. as you see behind me governor romney and one of his surrogates governor chris tear talking now, we are in mount vernon. the romney campaign has set up shop here and they will be here virtually through election today. they know they need to have ohio and after last wednesday it looks like they have a chance here. jon: the polls would indicate that. a lot of people seem to have changed their minds just based on that debate. >> absolutely. i mean, you know, 67 million people watched it. it was a governor romney that really we haven't seen before. i mean, you know, i along with so many people who cover him on a daily
. this is not the recovery we all wanted but we're on the road. for mitt romney it does take away one of talking points he has been very big on, number of consecutive months that the number has been at 8% or above, that line is gone from his speech. short term positives are there for president obama but long term you look at the historical numbers in terms of unemployment in presidential reelection years and depth of the political challenges are great here. >> heather: i'll ask you more about historically in a moment but the numbers have been called into question. there is actually a huge disconnect between the modest of new jobs report and significant decrease in the unemployment rate. jack welch, he went to as far to suggest that the numbers may be manipulated by the obama administration. do you think that the numbers add up? >> i think the suggestion that the numbers was cooked is relatively ridiculous. that being said. economists at the labor department will admit freely that there is a lot of margin of error in these numbers. a month after each job report these numbers are revised upward or downward.
in 08. no word for the romney campaign. but when i talked to staffers last night and discussed the obama total of over 181 million dollars. they all smiled and grinned and said perhaps we can top that. they haven't said that is the case. for mr. romney 12 million just since the debate. that is a vast amount of on line fund raise there is concern in the republican party that the big donor are making their money for the house and senate because mr. mitt romney had a tough go and well, in the wake of the debate uptake in big dollar donations for the romney campaign suggest they aleviated. there is a major phone bank and calling all over the country that type of grass roots is very, very important as we are 31 days from the election . it is electric. people were wait traffic was thick around that venu. i want to explain to everybody. we are monitor what the government is saying. he is getting cheers about remarks of repealing obama care. carl is on the job . campaign carl, we don't call him that for nothing. moving on now . and sticking with the economy. gas prices reaching an all-time high
't want to talk about his record. it fits him perfectly. >> well, shan sean, i agree with governor romney about pbs and npr, i don't think the government should subsidize that. i think big bird is sufficiently successful and masterpiece theater, jim lehrer, they are successful. the marketplace will support them. i think the viewers will support them, as much as they support this show -- about big bird is a gold mine. i would love to have big bird. >> hey, wait a second. remember, you are on that side of the fence. you are saying that obama's using big bird -- but we all love big bird. you are right. but i must tell you-- >>> this is a president that is dealing with small things. >> the problem here that if you -- when governor romney introduced the idea of cutting off big bird's neck, he was talking about -- cutting off his neck. >> he was talking about 100% of the federal -- he was talking about 1/100th of 1%-- >>> wait a minute. >> he wants to cut taxes-- >>> raise the military-- >>> stop with the talking points. waiment wait a minute. he was say, we are going to borrow money in the nam
. she is pro-big bird. mitt romney was talking yesterday he is against government subsidizing public broadcasting. here they both are. >> we believe in keeping our priorities straight. we all know good ask well that cutting sesame street is no way to balance the budget. >> food stamps, when the president took office, 32 million people on food stamps. now there are 47 million people on food stamps. these are tough times with real serious issues. so you have to scratch your head when the president spends the last week talking about saving big bird. [ laughter ] >> steve: he's right. >> brian: what an insult to the american people to think we're that stupid, we need a childhood character to drive home the fact that we're voting in november? >> gretchen: exactly. and that that would even be an admission that to keep it simple, stupid, is going to attract more people to your side. >> brian: keep it simple, you are stupid. >> gretchen: i mean, my goodness. again, i'm heartened by how many millions of people watched the debates and i hope just as many watch tomorrow night. the number of men
? >> mitt romney very subtly used the buried one. it was just perfect. he was talking about how bad the economy and was the middle class has taken it particularly heard hard, they have been burr buried. president obama gave a nod, he knew what had happened. it was a subtle use. >> greta: how important do you think the vice-presidential debate is? >> i continuing it will be important for the week, in that is -- it is the only show in town. there is no other presidential debate. so for the next week, it will be vitally important, it's the only show in town. people will be watching it. in the end, i don't think it's going to play much. i don't think there is a history of presidential debates, let alone, vice-presidential debates. >> greta: paying attention to the heart beat. >> i tend to agree but i do think have you early voting and people are voting every day. so whether or not, you know, it's all about the momentum at this point. moment's changing on a daily basis from, debate to jobs numbers. this is the next big thing. if you are losing the next big thing, you are losing that day,
romney is and he was last night. if he was talking, if he was speaking he was lying. >> i think that we expected an aggressive debater to show up last night on the debated stage with barack obama. we didn't expect an aggressively dishonest debater. that is what we got. >> we saw the governor romney they had known and problem in the past they haven't seen that person. he finally emerged during the debate. >> you say he lied through his teeth in the republican primaries when he was going to cut taxes for wealthy people. >> he is the sketch guy and transformed himself. we have to wonder which mitt is going to show up. if you layout lie after lie about your own plan as well as what the president has been talking about, of course you can look good. >> democrat and obama obama spin there. mitt romney's gain in the polls following a strong showing. there seem to be something of a theme there, jim. i heard the word liar time and time again. is that what happens what happens? >> it's like a sports game. we were robbed. those were democratic partisans doing the talking. i think the story of that
who talks about america's role in the world in a positive way. >> greta: and now governor romney out in front after pounding president obama in the debate. governor romney taking the lead in the polls in the latest pew polls governor romney leading president obama 49% to 45%. now last month he trailed by eight points. so can governor romney keep the momentum going or is he just on a political roller coaster? former senator fred thompson joins us. good evening, sir. >> good evening. >> greta: the republicans are dancing right now, but i wouldn't measure the drapes yet. >> no, no. still got a lot of campaign to go. but i think that for the first time people got a chance to see mitt romney and a little closer look at barack obama. you know, he hasn't been in that setting in a long time. i wasn't really surprised either case. nobody's ever accused romney of -- i mean obama of being a great debater. his only eloquence is off the teleprompter, in which he's very good at delivering a set piece, but not in that format. romney, on the other hand, has gotten better and better over several year
of the pilgrim's pride. i want to talk about the book in a moment but first you guys have experienced what i think mitt romney and paul ryan are experiencing in a profound way and that is that the media can i say it charitably they don't always play is completely even. would that be a fair assessment? >> absolutely. >> mike: you experienced it and have seen it. how do you confront that and what do you do when you know the media has cooked the store arery to make you look bad and the other side look good? >> happens all the time. keep your focus on the positive. you know the message that needs to be conveyed and you need to just stay the course. >> mike: mr. speaker do you think the debate was a game changer either way for ryan or for biden the other night as the first one i think we all agree was? >> i think there was a difference. the first one an aggressive effective romney and obama didn't show up. it was as though it was one of his national security briefings. [ laughter ] [ applause ] >> callista and i talked about it before hand and made the point if romney was as effective there as he
to the end of the debate. you and i talked about the fact that mitt romney took it to the president of the united states and stayed on offense. for two weeks before that mitt romney was on defense from the media and from barack obama. now obama has been on defense for the last week. you see the poll are the showing him going down, not going up. the one who can stay on offense ultimately sometimes will go out and win the battle, win the war. but it's like watching the tennis matches in new york, the u.s. open, back and forth. then november 7, that morning we'll find out who won. megyn: the consternation by some on the left who said this election was gone and it was a foregone conclusion that barack obama was going to win a second term, michael, you can see it in the publications coming out today how forlorn they are about the shift in polling. nobody is saying mitt romney has it sewn but this is a tight race. >> i was walking past a news expand in an airport yesterday and saw the cover of news week magazine. "is barack obama the democrat's reagan?" you have got to be kidding. the rea
romney is someone who has a commitment to being pro life and he doesn't talk about it a lot and when he does he doesn't do it as compellingly as he does on other issues but he has not backed away. when he has not been particularly clear as he was the other day in iowa, he comes forward and made a statement, i have not changed anything. this is where i was. this is where i am. this is where i'll be. it is a matter in the case of governor romney, where his passion is. his passion as a candidate, it is to turn the economy around and his passion is to shrink the size of government. he made the compelling case in the debate and did an excellent job. >>neil: is it your feeling, senator, that the economy is going the president's way? many of course have doubts about the reliability of the government data lately but having said that, it such that the obama folks can say, well, the trend is our friend and the republicans can whine about the economy but it is getting better and it is making mitt romney fight harder. >> when you pump tens and hundreds of millions of what the fed is doing to prop u
to uncovering the truth. but some are saying it is a cover up and want answers now. we'll talk to peter king. take two. obama and gov mitt romney get for a rematch. the pressure is on both candidates to find an edge. >> i am uma. live from the nation's capt cament starts right now. uma pemmaraju. >> over the next few days, president obama and governor romney will get deep in the debate prep for tuesday. obama looks to make up for the last debate performance romney looks to build on his momentum. karl cameron is traveling with the romney campaign and has more. >> we are live on the romney press bus in central ohio on the way to fort smith where governor romney will have a rally in a while. early this morning, he was taking part in the debate prep and he spent time sparring with his shadow boxers rob portman who plays the role of president obama . paul ryan is campaigning in ohio. big crowd and was aggressively going after the president on china policy. foreign policy will be a big part of the last debate. today paul ryan going after the president for not cracking down on china for the alleged
is important is that the fundamentals of what this race is about hasn't changed. governor romney went to trouble hide what his positions are. >> bret: president obama on abc tonight. talking about the debate. the poll changed, likely voters and romney-ryan ticket with one-point lead within the margin of error. among independent voters changed significantly. 44 to 3 #%, there you see. that is a big shift. steve, as promised, your thoughts on how the race has shifted as we get ready to head to danville, kentucky, tomorrow for the vice presidential debate? >> i think, evidence in the president's meants right there. i think they don't know how to answer this debate surge that romney has had. it's been a surge. it looks like sustained surge. you seen the white house scram to believe come up with an answer. first they said he was too conservative, then a flip-floper and then it was about big bird and he wasn't serious, this was an attempt to go after the deficit, he wasn't serious; whereas, they spent most of the campaign arguing that ryan and romney were radical, they wanted to overturn me
blaming governor romney for turning tragedy into politics. >> we're here in a debate. and i hope we get to talk about the debate. the eastbound entire reason this has become the political topic it is because of mitt romney and paul ryan. it's a big part of the stump speech. it's reckless and irresponsible. >> the romney campaign says the obama campaign is wrong. in a statement the campaign said the reason it is an issue because for the first time since 1979 an american ambassador was assassinated and president obama's strategy is failing. former senior advisor to president reagan joins us. your thoughts about what stephanie cutter said? >> i think it's nonsense. this was the worst terrorist attack since september 11th. gangs of dozens of men with ak 47s and rocket propelled grenades and mortarred attacked and murdered ambassador, then a safe house, some guys got away and reported it that night. it may have been in realtime. this was a terrorist attack. and t ambassador is dead. and then, to have five days later our un ambassador say on five stations that this was a spontaneous attack th
-ryan ticket has been less than truthful. >> are you saying governor romney lied or was dishonest? >> i think he was dishonest, absolutely. plenty of people pointed out what a liar mitt romney was. if he was talking he was speaking last night he was lying. >> i think that we expected an aggressive debater to show up last night on the debate stage with barack obama. we didn't expect an aggressively dishonest debater to show up and that what we got with mitt romney. >> many people are situation they saw was the governor romney they had known all along and what's been the problem in the past is they haven't seen that person and he finally emerged during the debates. >> are you saying he lied through his teeth in the republican primaries where he said he will cut taxes for wealthy people? >> he's the etch a sketch guy and he transformed himself. we always have to wonder which mitt will show up. if you lay out lie after lie after lie about your tone plan as well as what the president is talking about of course you can look good. megyn: ben le bolt, the national press secretary for obama. let me ta
: that heightens the pressure on mitt romney for the second debate? >>guest: when you talk about unprecedented, this first debate was an inflection point. what made it amazing from statistics you see fluctuation in polling data when the undecided is high like in the presidential primary. you have undecided at 20 percent or 25 percent and people do not know the candidates yet. here the undecided was seven. in high single digits. so you saw a big swing not only in some of the swing states but in the national polls, a dramatic swing, with a low undecided. that is what makes this an unprecedented move. >>neil: it must speak to the possibility, the possibility, that the president's support or a good many other supporters are not as strong or in his column as he thinks. given an appealing alternate they could and indeed will switch. what do you think? >>guest: that is the key. an aping alternate. right now, the national voter pie has, the approval rating of president obama at 47 percent or 48 percent is close enough to make a difference especially in the key states. what mitt romney has done is he h

. romney did not tell the truth. he should have called him out on it. >> kimberly: listen to this. this is talking about the race. places like north carolina, virginia, we've painted them red. not pulling those states again. focus on remain states. >> florida, north carolina and virginia will go to romney? >> that's right. we look at the polling data in florida and virginia and north carolina. >> kimberly: a liberal pollster saying it's a lock for romney. >> bob: i suggest he go back to polling school. i know this guy, he is a decent pollster. but to suggest that you write off three states. north carolina make sense. florida, probably getting close. no way you can call virginia. obama is ahead in virginia. 60% of the vote in virginia. all democratic. i don't believe it for a second that's right. >> kimberly: okay. that is your opinion. thank you for participating. tomorrow fox has coverage of the vice presidential debate. i'm going to kentucky for kentucky fried chicken and give you a preview in person of the fantastic debate. >> greg: where are you staying? >> kimberly: yeah, rig
friends at "says me street," would be talked about so were. you need that state if you are romney? >>guest: you do. it is 18 electoral votes and there is no other way he can get to 270 needed to win without ohio. very important state. that is why he has three events there tomorrow. >>shepard: real clear politics does an average of all the polls. there has been a lot made about polls recently and the enormous swing especially coming to women, but what is the thinking of you folks at real clear politics? >>guest: the debate helped mitt romney. what is important to note, two weeks ago mitt romney did a big three-stop tour of ohio for several days and that didn't move the polls in his direction in ohio. after the debate, he might now have some new traction. without trying to get a change in the direction of the polls in ohio he will have trouble. they want to build off of this traction they have from the debate and move it forward in ohio. >>shepard: there is another big debate, the day after tomorrow, the vice presidential debate. what kind of impact could that have given who the candidates a
on the economy. >> shep: you were talking about policy. what is it that governor romney says he would do differently? >> well, there haven't been a lot of specifics. there are some differences, however. for instance, mr. romney has said he will move to impose sanctions on iraq -- iran with the international community much more aggressively, as well as additional pressure from the united states. he argues that he will enable the rebels in syria to arm themselves more effectively, to go up against the iran-backed regime of assad who has been crushing rebels and killing civilians. and mr. romney said he will link relations with egypt, now led by pot morsi of the muslim brotherhood, what has been described virulent anti-west and says our relationship will be based on trade, something mr. romney said should be much more aggressively policed and pursued, free trade and fairer trade with china. those really the only major distinctions emphasized today and outlined in terms of specifics from mr. romney. shep? >> shep: carl cameron live in virginia. as i mentioned, president obama's team was resp
with never missing opinions. he talks about america and another four years with obama. we look at how it is run the 2012 campaign how it is conducting foreign policy how it paralyzed economic growth and solutions being offered by the romney, ryan ticket and do they have the country's answers? because the donald has been less than silent on the abysmal obama record he like so many on the right have been subjected to ridicule by the president and his team out of chicago. >> can the president do more to show leadership on being transparent with regard to documents, records, his own background that's another underlying theme the campaigns are going at. >> are you talking about donald trump? >> i know he has been taking flack lately but no one is happier no one is prouder to put this birth certificate record to rest than the doll nald. >> looking to continue to bring up is college records. >> the donald trump question which i think he is the one who brings it up the most. >> last year at this time on this very weak end we finally delivered justice to one of the world's most notorious indiv
's not wall street have you to worry about. it's sesame street. >> romney taking on our enemy autos so that is the message coming from team obama. maybe we'll hear about shameus, the dog. now, rnc points out the president talked about big bird and elmo for days and mentioning those at least 13 times, however, he's not uttered a word about the libyan terrorist attack or how he plans to fix the economy. big bird must be this week's version of the republican dirty air, dirty water and throwing granny over the cliff. conservatives focused on the real issue like putting americans back to work bringing justice to those terrorists that killed ambassador stevens and three other americans last month. that is the task of the white house. >> september 11th 2012. an american ambassador murdered and three other americans killed. and a security request submitted four months earlier, denied after two bombings and fears of being killed expressed by ambassador stevens. and they had no intelligence requiring increased security. then the attack. obama and his administration with evidence piling up on bar
money, how does it work? explain that. >>guest: those details are talked about. >> stimulating the economy, the president has not laid out his plan and they are saying, why doesn't governor romney lay out his plan. he has done it over and over and over again. >> he talked about cutting big bird. >> i would rather be on the side of momentum. >> if you are driving across the country and you say you will do it in 15 years can you not do that unless you speed. that is what mitt romney is saying. >>shepard: they both say they will fix this but neither has told us how. it stands to reason that the american people would go, you should tell us how but they are not going to. >>guest: i think we will hear it from the vice president. >> i would love to hear the details. >>shepard: all right guys, john, john, everyone is john today. we will be in kentucky tomorrow. i will miss the fox report tonight because we have to fly. we will be there for the stuff tomorrow and i will post it on the broadcast network, and bret baier and megyn will host it on the news channel, going a few minutes befor
said six times, he talked about the youtube video. now they're trying to blame the ryan-romney ticket for making this an issue. >> steve: of course, that's what they were talk being yesterday. so who won? cnn and cnbc did polls and mr. ryan was on top. cbs had one with some focus group. they felt that the vice president won. peggy nuland writes fort second time in two weeks, the democrat came out and defeated himself. in both cases, the republican was strong and the democrat somewhat disturbing. another way to say it is the old man tried it patronize the kid and the kid stood his ground. the old man pushed and the kid pushed back. >> brian: she did not mean that complimentary. >> gretchen: i actually think had is a debate that's going to percolate over a couple of days. when people go back and read and maybe see video and see this reaction, i think it may percolate over time where people will maybe change their opinion of exactly how it went. >> brian: it was -- >> gretchen: i think a lot of people -- i think it rubbed them the wrong way with the attitude. the headlines now. one month
five." now we want to talk about the "l" word. i don't mean love. obama campaign is throwing it around a lot. the word is "liar." democrats have been trying to paint mitt romney as one. but have they gone too far? dana, i go to you, because i remember working on campaigns and i'm sure you had an experience where people would outlight lie about what the president did. opponents would say something and i'd say they're lying. you couldn't call them a liar. they were fast and loose with the facts but this is the bottom really. this is a desperate attempt, don't you think? >> dana: as an official spokesperson of all the time i worked on capitol hill to the presidency. i never called anybody a liar on the record. i'm not speaking for anybody. i'm speaking for myself now. it's cynical and it talks down to somebody else. it's not working. i think it's working against them at this point. the law of diminishing return. they are experiencing it. after six months of trying to do nothing but saying he is such a liar. i heard of people who run on something to promise something. then they run for re-
very let down. >> he wasn't sure about mitt romney either. >> he has a history of speaking out about global warming he was the first governor to sign cap and trade. you think his search for coal is cle sincere? >> that's a tough question. >> i talk to do a lot of coal mierns all of them are democrats they hate president obama's policies but they are also weary of governor romney. >> i don't think they have reason to be weary of governor romney. we are going to do everything he can to hold his feet to the fire to make sure that our econ mow is unleashed. >> in other words mark levin suggests it's economic growth that will generate environmental solutions not the other way around. bjorn longberg agrees that's how progress happens. >> the trick is not believing this is how government mandate specific properties saying this is how we should do it this is what we want out of it. focused on broad based innovation not on specific mandates. >> you have a choice. >> voters will decide which strategy is which. >> this debate is far from ore while the results won't end it it will nonetheless se
are spear heading. mitt romney came out and was legitimately who he is. he didn't talk about the draconian cut. he played his role as a good manager, fixer. i think he was very likable and very rel spentful to the -- respectful to the president. a lot of women said wait a minute, he's not the monster that they said he was. that number is big for the romney campaign. >> dana: brian, when you look at these, if you look at ohio this morning, the poll that came out showing that romney is in a slight lead, which he has not been in ohio. do you think it's real? buenos aires >> brian: amazing a week ago they said take resources out of ohio and find another path to 270, which was highly unlikely. do i think it's real? anyone who criticizes the polls a week ago cannot embrace them this week because they may be more favorable. i'd say think. thought they nailed it today when they said this will be the election where the polls are going to be sidelined, as importance. i will say this, they show a trend. on top of all of, this i think bob beckel is right. bob, you said, saying all along that people do
in the shows. we will talk to experts on that debate performance. >> meanwhile mitt romney and paul ryan both in the all important swing state of ohio today. but president obama off the trail. he is hunkering down in virginia preparing for round 26 the debates. hoping to avoid another bad performance against romney. peter doocy live in d.c. with more. looking ahead to this town hall on tuesday. should be fun. >> it should be fun. and, dave, president obama admitted this week he had a bad night at the first debate and the general consensus was that he lost round one. but round 2 is on tuesday night and the president is taking steps to make sure he improves later on this afternoon. is he going to fly on down to williamsburg, virginia, about 150 miles away from the white house to get ready for that town hall style debate. is he going to be hidden from the public eye. he doesn't have any scheduled rallies or events today. 's not like he is finished campaigning because last night he did grab dinner are some contest winners in d.c. the pictures of that dinner were blasted out online last night. as
romney, no question, that debate was a game changer, but jamie, a debate doesn't win an election, it sets the tone. he has to keep performing, keep talking about what he will do to create a better america and are you better off than you were four years ago. and we have all of these poll numbers dealing with swing states, but the polls that count, would you go to the poll and vote and i believe that people are going to vote their wallets, not going to vote their conscience, not their culture, are you better off and do you have a job. >> jamie: given the economy is such a key issue, doug, i want to look forward to the first vice-presidential debate. without a doubt, paul ryan is a numbers guy and democrats have not even gotten a budget passed. not to mention the fact that vice-president biden is seen as making gaffe after gaffe when it comes to whether or not the last four years have been crushing for the middle class, he's had to backtrack on a couple of statements, i can't go through them all we don't have time. >> we don't have time right now. >> jamie: but what about that vice-president
, what's the thinking on governor romney's bounce in the polls since that first big debate? >> they are very pumped here. the romney campaign is quite excited. they say there is more to come. they're building and talking about their ground game, grassroots, 4 million people have been contacted here in ohio alone. 4 1/2 million. that's more than a third of the overall population. the polls have ticked up. romney has closed the gap, leading in some of the national polls, within the mar i didn't know of error, and in most of the battle ground states, he's either closed the gap and in a couple of cases, gone up by a point or two. these are swings in the polls. he's eliminated any bounce the president had gotten from his convention with the own bounce he got last week. with the vice presidential debate this week and two more presidential debathes and generally both campaigns have recognized for the better part of the last year that this race was always going to hover at a close to even tie, 45-47 apiece and it will be decided probably in the last two weeks to ten days as that la
consequential debate. because of how poorly the president did. every 10 people that you talk tompt 7 out of 10 said that the president got crushed. momentum is firmly in the romney camp and now 42 year old paul ryan against 69 year old joe biden and a guy who has been studying fervantly has to take on the whiz kid from congress. is he capable of stopping the bleeding. >> steve: the moderator will be martha ratz. she's the moderator and she is a long-time correspondant for abc news. she is the moderator of the vp debate. guess what was in attendance of her wedding in 1991 when she married a harvard lawyer. you know who went to er wedding? barack obama and mr. obama, her then husband and -- they are now divorced. >> brian: paul ryan said it doesn't matter. >> gretchen: they knew it and selected the people on hand. i think the bigger issue tonight, how much of a full attack mode will joe biden be in? he has that charm element and you have to wonder how much of a fighting dog he will be . how ryan will keep the momentum going for romney? it is surprising to see how the polls have shifted. >> brian
said for now like she is holding it over romney's head. that can changing so you be on the mark. >> i love the people backing mitt romney. i had hulk hogan and he was telling me about his new sex tape. after he talked about the sex tape he said, oh, and i am voting for -- you have lyndsay lohan. >> that's not true, i am not. >> will i am is not cool. >> you think stacy dash is cool. >> mo money. >> but she's cool. >> it was mo and not more. >> she doesn't have time for the or or the. >> it is a long story, what does that mean? jay she will get more publicity talking about it. she can change her mind a few times. maybe she can sit here and be a political commentator. >> bill, do you ever talk politics with lyndsay or do you drop off her stuff and leave? >> i am holding out until i find out who salina gomez is going for. i will not make my decision until that wonderful, talented startles me who to vote for. until then, lyndsay can go to hell. >>> time to take a break. when we return, a performance from tonight's musical guest. >>> michael vick acknowledged he is once again a proud dog o
's essentially a tie right now. the data is so close. but romney was behind by a field goal, now he's kicked a field goal and we have a tie race going into the final weeks. >> what voter groups have moved in the last three weeks? are you talking about independents, are you talking about specific demographic groups? who has moved? >> well, one group that hasn't moved are the strong partisans. democrats and republicans who turn out are going to vote for their own nominee. the key statistic to watch with the partisans is enthusiasm. and the presidential debate clearly help the republican enthusiasm and hurt the democratic enthusiasm. on the other hand, the group to watch as far as the ballot test goes are the independents because they are much less lock into their particular pref presence at -- preference at the moment. your own poll showed that in virginia, according to wall street journal poll, independents moved a net seven points toward romney after the debate, and in ohio independents moved a net twelve points toward romney after the debate. those are big swings among independents, and it'
. they have different constituencies they are trying to support. >> greta: all right. if we were talking a year from now and assume two hypothetical, first one, president obama is re-elected. second one, governor romney wins. a year from now, are you -- which presidency is going to likely -- are you likely to hire more people under? >> well that's a tough one because -- i think the right way to understand this is, you go to a dentist and you say, i have a tooth ache. he gives you novacane and you say, no, no, i have a cavity. you have a root canal. he gaves novacane. it's okay. but at some point, have you to if i can the problem. george bush started it. barack obama has given bigger doses. i don't see mitt romney -- mitt romney's probably a better dentist and knows how it manage things and probably could fix things a little bit better. but all i hear from either is various forms of bigger and bigger doses of nove novocain and not fixing the structurual, institutional problems. at a superficial level, who gave more novocain supported more job, but neither of them are taking the institutio
is a bizarre battle. when you are talking about rights. how is dispensing candy a right? >> it is a privilege. it is a privilege you are in america giving candy to children. mitt romney riding a spider on anybody's lawn, no wide will go there. no wide wants to deal with the lecture they will give you and they will register you to vote. kids don't want to vote ?ie. from offenders to pretenders. she likes to maim while playing a game. she is a democratic candidate, and they have them there. and she is a left 80 fire assassin rogue. >> while they were playing the world of war craft or wow, and the main republican party says it makes her unfit for office. one, i am a level 68 rogue girl. we already knew that. and that means i stabbed things a lot. who would have thought a peace loving social worker would enjoy that. and the next one, i love poisoning and stabbing. it is fun. i never thought i would love it so much either. sounds like pab. i did not start out in wow with a rogue. if you excuse me, i may have to drowned grover norquist in my bathtub. in colleen's fantasy world she gets away with cr
can turn his wonkiness, his mastery of numbers into something like mitt romney in the first debate to empathy and personalize it. bill: everybody is on record what they expect. you talk about the expectations. everybody lowballs the stuff including to the president to a degree. here is what he said on abc with diane sawyer. >> i think joe needs to be joe. congressman ryan is a smart and effective speaker but his ideas are the wrong ones. bill: hang onto that word ideas because it will come up a lot tonight. we have not seen joe biden in six days. >> yeah. six days off the campaign trail because he is studying. he is cramming. he is doing debate prep. that is quite something. you know, in the wake of the president's debate, first debate with mitt romney, there has been this back and forth. we've heard just bits and pieces of this debate performance between joe biden and his debate sparring partner which is congressman chris van hollen from maryland, who is by the way the ranking member of the house budget committee and knows paul ryan very well. but he has been doing a lot of practi
obama talking points. >> bill: no, no. we're interested in you and what you think. last question, if the president loses to mitt romney because you're a massachusetts guy, he was the governor of the state. >> indeed. >> bill: are -- >> i know mitt romney. i met him. very nice guy. >> bill: you're not going to move out of the country or something? you be all right? >> i hope not. i think president obama is in good shape. i would put money on president obama? >> bill: how much money you want to put on it? 'cause i got dick morris back here. the movie is "argo." ben affleck, we appreciate it. it's gotten great reviews. it opens on friday. >>> when we come back, dennis miller takes on big bird, biden and ryan. miller is next [ male announcer ] it's simple physics... a body at rest tends to stay at rest... while a body in motion tends to stay in motion. staying active can actually ease arthritis sympto. but if you have arthritis, staying active can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain so your body can stay in motion. because just one 200mg celebrex a day
of the debate he would. >> he plans everything though. he is mitt romney. >> i am surprised you didn't pick burt and ernie because of the questions around their relationship. >> there are no questions around their relationship. they are friends. i am sick of hearing -- oh, you are talking burt and ernie? >> is big bird a tall lesbian? >> big bird does not seem like a five-year-old child. that's the role he plays. >> gavin, i actually just to get controversial here, you described president obama as being among other things, you describe as being isolated. do you want to take back that charged rhetoric? >> somebody told me recently that tom cruise doesn't even know that he is the laughing stock, and he doesn't know that scientology is for nut bars. he is kept in this bubble. he is walking through life going, do do do. everything is awesome. i think obama is the same way. when people insult him, it is a total slap in the face. the arizona governor when she wrote the little -- when she wrote the third of a paragraph, he couldn't handle it. he is not used to being criticized. he is doing his speeches
as well when people saw romney because he did not seem like an extremist. he seemed like a reasonable guy. you can be sure, and again, that was another thing that obama didn't hit at all. he never talked about the social issues and women. you got to assume that biden is going to go after that tonight. >> shep: yeah. i would be very surprised if he didn't. i don't know about you, i have greater anticipation for this vice presidential debate than any i can remember. >> well, four years ago when sarah palin was interesting, too. but i will say -- >> shep: for different reasons. >> let me be the first to announce that the nationals won on a walk-off homerun. >> shep: we were watching it. congratulations to your nats. >> there you go. now i can focus solely on the vice presidential debate. >> shep: so in other words, you don't care about the yankees? >> no. i'd like the orioles to beat them. not particularly.

's debate. chris? >> reporter: i have been doing some reporting today, bret. i talked to top officials from both campaigns. surprisingly, interestingly, both sides describe what is going to happen tonight in almost identical terms. both camps say look for biden to go hard after the romney/ryan ticket to say they are hiding what they really stand for, they are more conservative and more extreme than they are telling voters. both sides say look for ryan to go big in it debate, to say that voters face a big choice between what obama is offering them and what romney is offering them. finally, both sides say, let's be honest, vice-presidential debatings have a very limed impact on the outcome of the campaign, but with tens of millions of people watching, both sides say they are taking this seriously. >> all right, chris. we will have the analysis after the debate. again, this is 90 minutes. it is going to be interesting to watch. a lot of people expecting fireworks early. the format is foreign policy, domestic policy. and it will be broken up into segments, so we could see back and forth. but ho
